I voted after dinner as that is when I start but I usually drink up to within an hour or two of going to bed.

For me it's before dinner. I find my nose and palate is more sensitive so I get more out of what i'm drinking. I enjoy drinking a few hours after dinner too but sometimes the meal can adversely effect the taste of whisky.

Honestly? Whenever I get "the urge" would be most appropriate for my habits.

I generally have a dram after dinner but have been known to dram earlier in the day - especially if the online tasting has been set up for 6 pm GMT. Then I'm dramming at noon!

Good question, I hope more people take the time to respond.

usually late night before I pass out. Nothings worse than waking hours later realizing half your drink is flat, gone to the dogs :evil:

99% of the time it is nightcap only for me. On rare occasions I'll open a new bottle right after the purchase during the day, and rarely I'll have something around dinnertime.

I don't pair malt whisky with food or see it as an after dinner drink. It's just pure pleasure in the evening before bed, and after a long stressful day it surely hits the spot.

Slainte!

I don't think its "fair" to only let us pick one option. That's like having three bottles out and saying you can only try one. :)
That said, after work and before dinner. And it's always nice to knock off work early and eat later... :)

Rarely before 10.30pm, usually to accompany a tv programme, DVD or something on the radio.

I'm thinking about this question and I'm not sure any are adequate for me. It's more of a thing amongst friends regardless of time of day. I do like a whisky with dinner as well.
